Not your mother’s mommy.

So, who is this Barbara Danza, anyway? (See blatant selfie below.)

Barbara Danza

Well, what would you like to know?

I could tell you about how I’m a Mommy of two awesome little people who amaze and entertain me every day.

I could tell you how I somehow landed the most supportive husband on the planet.

I could point you to my resume highlighting my fancy MBA and my current line of work writing and editing for the Epoch Times.

P1040485I could tell you about how I love LOVE the beach and can’t believe that I actually live down the shore. (Yup, Jersey!)

I could share with you those idiosyncrasies that are all mine – like my Peter Pan complex that makes me enjoy shopping for toys to a ridiculous extent or my obsessive need to organize anything in my path or my perfectionism that has delayed the creation of this website by some (gulp) years.

I could go on and on about my passion for alternative ideas on schooling and education and the role we as parents can play in this day and age when technology offers us so many opportunities and resources……… (yadda yadda yadda) <– I could subtly reveal that I’m a huge fan of Seinfeld.

I would be more than happy to share with you the ways in which practicing Falun Dafa (a.k.a. Falun Gong) has benefited my life and that of my family – and about the things I do to try to raise awareness about the horrific persecution of people practicing Falun Dafa in China.

And I will.

I will share all of this and more as I develop this blog and in my content elsewhere.

If you’re a parent, especially, be sure to stay tuned. Get on my email list so you don’t miss anything. This website’s for you.


I love being a mom. I love this parenting journey my husband and I have been on for almost a decade now. (Whoa, it’s flying!)

We aim, very simply, to raise kind, compassionate children and allow them every opportunity to explore their interests and the world around them

…and to celebrate who they truly are.

This, to us, equals a magical childhood.

In pursuing this, our lives have been filled with great joy and wonder. We’re learning right along with them and having way too much fun!

I hope you enjoy my website. I so appreciate you visiting and taking a look around. 🙂

  1. Hi Barbara! I just read your article on Disney resource. Great stuff! I think that is an important place to start. There are so many sites and planning a Disney vacation can be so overwhelming. I wanted to let you know about my site that is focused on going to Disney on a budget (or cheaply).


    If you know anyone who can use me as a resource please send them my way. Let me know if I can be of help as well.


  2. Enjoy your writing about education and home schooling. I thought you might like to see two short strories about what schooling was like in the midwest in the 1850s and what chores were required of children.
